Mission and Ministry

Search Retreat

  • The Search Retreat program provides an environment that promotes exploration of self within community. The retreat itself began from Christian roots, it has evolved to invite people from a variety of backgrounds that want to explore their spirituality. Regardless of your faith experience or background there is no prerequisite to attend. The goal is to invite people to reflect their lives and help them to explore aspects on how they make and find meaning on their journey.  

    The weekend is highlighted by presentations of self-discovery, community, relationships, resiliency and spirituality /faith by students and alumni. Search also includes activities such as small and large group sharing, journaling, free reflection time, community celebration, and a variety of events that will make your Search experience extremely memorable.

    The weekend is a unique opportunity for you to better understand where you are in your life, develop closer relationships with many members of the campus community, and continue your own journey of self-exploration.
